Join the Sea Hunters as they dive a closed Turkish military zone for the remains of two British battleships lost in the Dardanelles campaign. In the Straits of the Dardanelles off the coast of Gallipoli, lies the wreckage of HMS "Goliath" and the HMS "Triumph", both lost while stationed with the Allied fleet during the Dardanelles campaign. "HMS Triumph", sunk by famed U-boat captain Otto Hersing in U-21, was a Swiftsure class battleship, and now lies in nearly 72 meters of water. Another pre-dreadnought, the Majestic, was sunk a few days later by the same U-boat. "HMS Goliath", a Canopus class battleship was sunk by the skilled and audacious maneuverings of a Turkish torpedo boat, the Muavenet. These losses represented a major blow for the Royal Navy and were indicative of the bloodshed and massacre that were to follow on the shores of Gallipoli.
